Maddison seems an ideal fit for Tottenham’s style of play, especially with doubts lingering over Christian Eriksen, who is in the final year of his contract with the north London club.

It remains to be seen if a deal can definitely be done as Maddison will surely not come cheap, but the Mirror claim Spurs could get a decent chunk of their £72million Champions League money to spend on transfers.

Spurs fans would surely be happy if Maddison is one of their main targets for the summer, with the youngster looking like having a big future at the highest level of the game.
